MTB 24 Hours of Rome
Are you an expert biker looking for new challenges? Or are you a brave beginner willing to experience something new and exciting? Either way, MTB 24 Hours of Rome is the answer.
The MTB 24hours of Rome is a relay race open to everybody, from beginners to professionals, taking place from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th of September in the stunning location of Parco degli Acquedotti– a wonderful park in Rome that owns its name to an ancient Roman aqueduct still amazingly preserved.
The MTB 24hours of Rome is the perfect occasion to socialize and enjoy three days of sport, sunshine and history. Bikers and their partners will settle in the event camp site on Friday 13th September where they are offered the possibility to take part in one of the most beautiful rides in the world: “Pedalata nella storia- a Ride through History”, that will take them through the centre of Rome, showing its most famous and wonderful monuments, streets, squares and landscapes. Then on Friday evening there will also be a “Toga Bike Party” for an evening dedicated to music, pasta and fun.
The race starts on Saturday 14th September at 12am and ends 24 hours later on Sunday 15th. Bikers can participate in teams of 2, 4 or 8 people, or the bravest of riders can ride in the “solo” category. There is also the “Lazybones- Fannulloni” category that allows even none-cyclists to create a team up to 12 people and take part in this amusing and unique event.
Athletes race for 24 hours non-stop on the mostly flat circuit that passes along the stunning Acquedotto Claudio; the bike lights along with the special location make the atmosphere even more magic and unique. The trophy “24h MTB S.P.Q.R. MMXII” (a Roman helmet) will be awarded to the athlete or team that has ridden through the most kilometres.
The MTB 24hours of Rome staff will help you find and build a team, rent a bike and find convenient accommodation for all your friends and family supporting you in Rome.
